An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. George H. Pope outfits his office with a well-trained staff and the latest technology to meet clients' cosmetic needs. Like orange groves, unsightly spider veins can develop anywhere on the body and their progress must be halted by lasers—especially lasers that live in a comforting environment with soothing waterfalls in the waiting room and warmly colored furniture. During your duo of anti-arachnovein sessions, trained technicians will aim a Cutera Excel laser at your blood tubes, heating and dissolving the vexing vessels. Spider veins can take several weeks to disappear entirely, and the best results are typically seen after multiple treatments; today's Groupon can also be used to treat vascular lesions including telangiectasias, angiomas, and the rogue veins that live deep within your legs.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
Doctors of Chiropractic Victor Lasa and Suanette Torres helm Encompass Chiropractic Center, providing physical, massage, and laser therapy to treat injury and musculoskeletal concerns. Concerned with overall health, they treat the conditions and not just the pain to prevent recurrences. They also design weight-loss and nutrition programs to bolster well-being.
Though only elective, non-diagnostic ultrasounds are performed at Little Life Imaging, they are performed by licensed OBGYN diagnostic sonographers. These technicians have worked at local doctors' offices and medical facilities, using the same medical-imaging equipment found in prestigious prenatal centers and children’s hospitals. In addition to completing the 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D ultrasounds, the technicians can record the baby's heartbeat and transfer the sonogram to a commemorative DVD and CD.
The facility boasts clean, welcoming treatment rooms and a play area for kids. The space also hosts showers where the baby appears on the screen as the guest of honor, and parties to announce the baby's gender or innate ability to do the Macarena.
The aestheticians at Advanced Aesthetics and Wellness wield an arsenal of medical lasers and facial treatments that take aim at the signs of aging during 30- to 60-minute sessions. Matrix IR wrinkle reduction stimulates the complexion's collagen production with heat, energy, and a rousing conference room pep talk, leaving skin cells plumped and dewy looking. Fine lines, sun spots, and textural irregularities jump ship after surrendering to Sublative Rejuvenation's fractional resurfacing methods, and ReFirme skin tightening employs radio frequencies and elos laser energy to lift and tone tired face flesh.
Located near Universal Orlando Resort, Avalon Massage & Health Spa serves as a relaxing retreat from both the real world and the unreal world of theme parks. Potted plants and landscapes of waterfalls and tropical scenes in the waiting area and private treatment rooms transport clients to a stress-free zone, as does the relaxing sauna and Swiss shower. Along with soothing massages that range from a romantic couple’s massage to a deep tissue or sports massage, the staff pampers clients with facials, body wraps, and waxing. They also perform nail care—pampering each and every one of your nails, even the ones holding your house together.
